Default Re: Screen stays black after switching virtual console or after quitting Xorg

It seems an interaction issue between the nVidia driver and xserver > 1.2 (1.3, 1.4), with or without framebuffer enabled.

This is a critical bug, is there a way to report this to nVidia?

Default Re: Screen stays black after switching virtual console or after quitting Xorg

I have the same notebook with the same symptoms martini wrotes.
all 9xxx and earlier drivers I tried are working fine. all 100.x.x drivers are erroneous.

I first tried this months ago, than switched back to 9xxx driver to wait some time but nothing changed with the newer 100.x.x drivers...
(Fuji Amilo m3438g, Gentoo, several compiler/kernel versions)

Thumbs up Kind of a solution found for Laptop Computers (not ideal, though)

Though a slightly different issue, I thought this might be helpful.

This is a real regression. Releases up to 96.43.01 work, newer ones don't (have also tested 169.07).

I'm forced to use old drivers that don't work well with compositing now that even distros enable it by default.

Attached bug report log with 169.07

with xf86-video-nv-2.1.6, VTs work fine (it's even faster at doing it than any "nvidia" driver I've ever used)
